We are on our way toward a society where machines and robots will do most of these hard labor tasks for us. Someday, maybe 400 to 1,000 years from now we won't have to lift a finger to survive. All the food and products will be produced with minimum human labor, which will allow for more time to think, invent, travel, educate ourselves, and enjoy life to the fullest. We are not at that point yet, but we're closer to that goal than we were even 50 years ago.
Well, that's what was told to the underclass when the industrial revolution started. Didn't happen. And when women joined the "work force". Didn't happen. And when robotics and computers began to gain power in the 70's. Didn't happen. What happens is that the rich get richer and the commoners work harder and harder for less wealth. Check it out.
